I have an old 300 baud Modem II from Radio Shack that I want to make
use of. Problem is -- I lost the manual. Does know the dial command
for this dinosaur?
Thanks in advance!

You must type . to see the * and x is excute.
I have a 1200, guess it might work if the Modem II did have autodial.

Funny, I had this same problem yesterday with my Radio Shack 43-958.
It happened while I was replacing the batteries. Turns out that model
draws loop current from the line when the batteries are low or
removed. Any chance it is a battery problem?
By the way, I found the manuals archive on the Radio Shack web site
quite useful, although it didn't mention this problem. The manual for
this box is long lost, and I had forgotten that it could play
pre-programmed voice messages to blocked or un-ID'd callers. Go to
www.radioshack.com and click on Product Manuals in the bar across the
top of the page. Quite an extensive collection.
[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: You know, I had a very similar problem
last week with a USB camera (Oregon Scientific). It does have a couple
little tiny batteries in it, but I had been assuming it got its power
off of the USB port. I accidentally dropped the camera on the floor
and about that time it quit working and all I got on its local LED
screen was gibberish. I assumed dropping it on the floor had done it
in, somehow broke its little internal circuit board, etc, so I sat it
aside. Exploring it a day or two later, I opened its trap door and
saw the two little batteries, one of which was badly corroded. I took
them out and got two new, fresh batteries and the cam started working
again; there was nothing wrong with it. I had been assuming it was
getting all its power off of the USB line; it did not occur to me that
it had those two tiny batteries in it also. PAT]
